Originally titled in French as La Funambule, this piece is one of three works by Belgian artist Dirk De Keyzer located in the courtyards of Westgate. Capturing and reshaping snapshots of our everyday life, De Keyzer’s art is characterised by a subtle humour that makes us smile. This is, in part, achieved by distorting and exaggerating the human figures such that they take on the feel of caricatures.
Here, a tiny woman with a thin neck and elongated arms is playing the equilibrist over life or other situations that the artist enjoys twisting with a dash of mischief. Is this the artful dance of work-life balance that many city folks have to perform?
